We’ve all been saying it – the world is crazy right now. So – here’s some clarity around what’s top of mind for me: the energy crisis in China, opportunities with NFTs, and what the heck to do with paid social.
This episode is a solo cast. I wanted to check in and talk about what’s been on my mind as we prepare for Q4 and ultimately start to make our 2022 business plans.
I’m thinking about how to optimize Facebook and Instagram for Q4 (after a crazy year). I’ve been doing daily journaling and it’s given me a great perspective on where I’m at in my business and life. I’m also talking about how the energy crisis in China will likely impact business and why you should be paying attention now. Plus, I’ll share some new exciting things to come on the podcast with an NFT series.
I’d love to hear from you on Twitter. What are you thinking about? What’s exciting to you right now? Let me know what you’d like to hear more about on the podcast.
I hope you enjoy this solo episode – I always enjoy talking with you.

Do you ever wonder how the companies you admire, the ones that redefine their categories, like Living Proof and Chubbies, do it?
They do it by building relationships with their customers from the very beginning, while also evolving in real time as their customer’s needs change
These companies connect quickly with their customers, collect their information and start creating personalized experiences and offers that inspire rapid purchase…often within minutes of uploading their customer data

At Ecommerce Influence, we struggled to answer the same question as most of our listeners: how do we best monetize our hard-earned website traffic? We wanted to improve conversions, personalize experiences for our site visitors, and create popups that people actually love.
Lucky for us, we found a solution — OptiMonk. Companies like BlendJet, Avon, and The Body Shop use OptiMonk, because their solutions can boost an online store’s revenue by 20%.
OptiMonk can help you increase average order value, decrease cart abandonment, and collect valuable customer feedback. We worked with Optimonk to create a collection of high-converting popup templates exclusively for our listeners.
